Iĺve had my 2008 1.6l Qashqai for 8 years and that is completely normal. It could do with another gear.

I've done a calculation but don't know whether it's right. I came out at 20.01mph/1000rpm which sounds a bit low to me.

That would mean 3498rpm at 70mph.

I'll see if I can find another.

Hmm...

This site has it automated - and it comes out at 19.3mph/1000rpm in 5th.

That means 3627rpm at 70mph - so potentially close to your observation



EDIT - note this calculator applies a 0.965 tyre size loading as explained in the article - taking that off the calculation puts this one up to 20mph/1000rpm too...

https://wahiduddin.net/calc/calc_speed_rpm.htm comes out at 20.01mph/1000rpm too...

[ note you can get the more accurate result by putting 10,000 rpm in the table then dividing by 10 ]

My 2012 1.6L petrol has been a great car despite only 5 gears, but once you know how to work the gears, 3500 rpm at 70mph isn't an issue.
